Lesleigh Salinger says the association fought to retain it for educational use but the fate was decided by the Government and the Ministry of Education. “That land had actually been used for education for something like 80 years, so that was very disappointing.” Councillor Andy Foster says the outcome is not what everyone wanted, but “we’ve got to work with what we’ve got”. Speaking before the meeting, local resident Bill Guest said Karori’s 18,000 people should have a secondary school. “NIMBYism and snobbery seem to have prevented that,” he says, adding that he didn’t want to see it become a dormitory suburb,” so I’d like to see some dispersal of economic activity to give us a few more jobs.” During the meeting, residents also quizzed councillors on upgrading the town centre, on housing and the planned Karori events centre. At the end of the meeting, Councillor Diane Calvert notified residents on next steps, saying the council will allocate $1 million towards the town centre upgrade, which is due to start in 6-12 months. Speaking after the meeting, Ms Salinger says the Karori Association is promoting parks and eco-tourism to fight the ‘dormitory suburb’ image.

“It’s not just Karori, it’s actually nationwide. It has implications across the country.” Plunket is in the process of transferring community assets and properties into the control of the organisation’s national office in Wellington. The sale of Karori’s former teachers’ training college to Ryman Healthcare was also raised during Karori’s turn for a “Mayor in the Chair” monthly meeting which rotates around Wellington suburbs. Residents and councillors want a secondary school for the site. K a r or i A sso c iat ion ch a i r

Plunket “has a gun to the head” of Karori over the fate of the suburb’s Plunket crèche, a resident told a community meeting in the Karori Community Centre last week. Murray Martin was just one of a number of Karori residents who voiced concerns on the creche’s closure to Mayor Justin Lester and local councillors at last Wednesday’s public meeting on the suburb’s future. Vanessa Kirkham, who sits on the crèche’s parent’s committee, said parents were getting a “blank wall” response from Plunket .
